When you are a member of the hottest boy band working today, with millions of shrieking female fans clamoring for a piece of you, precautions are necessary.

That's just what One Direction cutie Louis Tomlinson has done. The singer has installed a panic room in his house to protect his girlfriend, Eleanor Calder.

The Sun reports that LT spent $22,000 on the protective bunker. A source said, “Louis loves the fans and isn’t overwhelmed with paranoia. He’s just a realist about the dangers of being in the spotlight."

Better safe than sorry…
